First-Ever Electric BMW i4 M50

Meet the First-Ever Electric BMW i4 M50

The BMW i4 M50, available for pre-order at Bill Jacobs BMW, is the M Performance version of the new all-electric i4. The BMW i4 M50 is the first-ever electrified car to come from the M Division at BMW with all the power and performance M  drivers have come to expect from this luxury brand. The BMW i4 BMW has two electric motors, one at each axle, making 536 horsepower and 586 lb-ft of torque. The BMW i4 M50 can get from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, which is about as fast as the rear-wheel-drive BMW M3 Competition.

BMW i4 M50 Range

What is the Range of the BMW i4 M50?

Answer: The BMW i4 M50 packs a range of 270 miles, which is far more than enough for 95 percent of Americans on a daily basis.

However, if you do have to stop off and charge, the i4 M50 is capable of 200 kW charging, among the fastest in the industry. If you can find a 200 kW charger — which is admittedly difficult to do — it can add 87 miles in ten minutes. On a Level 2 11 kW home charger, it can charge from flat to full in eight hours. So if you plug it in at night, when you wake up in the morning, it will always have a full charge. Giving you a fresh 270 miles each and every day.

Should I buy a BMW i4 M50?

Should I buy a BMW i4 M50 or a BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe?

Answer: The BMW i4 M50.

Because the BMW i4 M50 is based on the 4 Series Gran Coupe, it feels very similar to drive, meaning customers used to modern BMW sedans will feel right at home in the i4. Especially when you consider that the interior is mostly the same. Unless you absolutely cannot own an EV as your daily drive; for reasons such the as lack of charging network near you or frequent long-distance trips without charging stations along the way; the BMW i4 offers all of the same great qualities as its 3 Series/4 Series siblings but with an improved powertrain. The BMW i4 is the best version of the 4 Series Gran Coupe, so if you’re looking to get one, or even a 3 Series sedan, check out the BMW i4 as well.

Ultimately, the new BMW i4 M50 is a great car worthy of your consideration.
